Katy Perry & Carly Rae Jepsen: Sold their Souls for a Wish

Katy Perry & Carly Rae Jepsen:  Sold their Souls for a Wish

There is this annoying poppy little tune on the radio that drives me nuts every time I hear it, because when I first heard it a few months ago I was sure I heard her sing the words, “hope for Satan is real” in the actual song – no back tracking here guys.  I told my husband, and he said, “now-a-days nothing would surprise me”.

If you look at her lyrics, you can’t find the words she so blatantly sings on the lyrics sheet, but what we do find is something else…she says:

I threw a wish in the well, Don’t ask me,  I’ll never tell, I looked to you as it fell, And now you’re in my way
I’d trade my soul for a wishPennies and dimes for a kiss, I wasn’t looking for this, But now you’re in my way…

And then the lyric line where “Hope for Satan its Real” is supposed to appear, you have these words instead …

I beg, and borrow and steal, Have foresight and it’s realI didn’t know I would feel it,

But she does not sing, “Have foresight and it’s real”, she clearly says, “Hope for Satan is Real”

So a few weeks later we were in the car and the song came on the radio and I said to him, listen. And we listened and bobs your uncle… there she said it, “hope for..Satan is real”.

Before you had to be dressed in black to be classed as a satanist.  Look at Carly Rae, all pretty in pink, singing a poppy little tune aimed at little girls.

So I went to Google to see if anyone else picked up on this and taadaaaa, someone has, thank goodness for that:It is so important for parents to listen to the music their kids are listening too, to get an understanding of how Satan is attacking the youth.  And to inform their kids about the musicians, what they believe in or who they believe in (Lucifer) and what their motives are; to ensnare children into satanism.Katy Petty Katy Perry has been doing a fine job of doing this, telling the world she came from a charismatic church background, slain in the spirit and all, could not find fame in the Christian music business, so she sold her soul to the devil: (listen to audio below):

It’s such a shame that Katy Perry thinks that the false church she was raised up in is what biblical Christianity is all about – it’s not.  She got the raw end of the deal being abused by a Charismatic environment of false teaching, false feelings, false emotions, and a false spirit. And now Satan is using her as an advocate to preach his evil message to kids, that it’s great to dump ‘Christianity’ and follow Lucifer.The media’s message to the gullible and innocent are: Look at Katy, she is doing great. Satan is really looking after her.  Katy just wants to make people smile, that’s her big aim in life, and gosh Satan can’t be that bad if he allows her to do that?  Look at all those fireworks she produces, just a big ray of illuminated light Katy is, and she loves eating candy floss.  Satan really likes candy floss too – he is not this evil being that everyone makes him out to be.Katy Perry tells us about her Christian upbringing and sits in clothing depicting “The Eye of Horus” insinuating to us she has made this wonderful change to Luciferianism.Katy Perry’s rise to stardom is phenomenal and she will do anything to be number 1.The Bible tells us Satan is a deceiver, the father of of lies, he comes to us disguised as an angel of light, and he temps us with wealth, health and in these musician’s case, fame – all they have to do is sell their soul to him.  Get initiated into a masonic cult, practice some black magic and Satan then gives them an ‘enlightened’ experience which they believe is out of this world.Seduced by Satan, he allows them freedom to think as they please.  At least that is what they think, unbeknownst to them they are trapped in a demonic stronghold that is shaping their thoughts in line with everything that is evil, and the accepting of the coming anti-Christ.

Escaping this trap will result in 1 of two things.  1) Realising their mistake and repenting and coming to Jesus Christ – not the one presented by these charismatic churches, but the REAL Jesus Christ of the Bible or,  2) End up dead under mysterious circumstances, like most of these famous actors and singers are ending up.

John 8:44  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

2 Corinthians 11:14   And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Matthew 4:8-10
Matthew 4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
Matthew 4:9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
Matthew 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

*** One can only pray that these musicians comes to their senses…Satan does not own their soul, even after they supposedly sold it to him – it’s all a LIE.

2 Timothy 2:26  And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

  • Carm

    I’ve done a bit of looking into the Katy Perry phenomenon, since it has ‘confused’ some pentacostal christian friends of mine, and raises issues about surety of salvation, backsliding, etc. etc. Oh the drama!

    I think the sold-their-souls camp have done a tremendous job in exposing the music industry, but it gets very confusing when you throw Mind Control into the picture – since some of these people were very definitely groomed since infancy.

    The Katy Perry narrative also has some holes in it… For one thing, the pastor parents’ ho-hum reaction to Katy’s smut never ceases to ammuse.

    Who is Katy Perry (actually Katy Hudson)? “Perry’s maternal aunt and uncle were screenwriter Eleanor Perry and director Frank Perry, through whom she is also related to Charles M. Schwab, the founder of the Bethlehem Steel Corporation.”
    So we have a famous family? Well that’s a first in the entertainment industry!

    My theory is that the “traveling evangelist pentacostal pastor” parents have been planted (do yourself a favour and google some pictures of the Katy Perry’s parents… scary stuff… here’s her dad: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWMEZzRbRwc ). It’s a perfect cover for raising Monarch children… and making a mockery of christianity in the process – apparently discrediting christians, and then confusing mainstream christians.

  • Daniel Knezacek

    I would agree with you that these girls are part of Satan’s strategy to deceive a generation.

    One comment I have is that you cannot sell something that you don’t own! Katy and Carly Rae don’t own their own souls and never did! They either belong to Satan, or they belong to the Lord. Either way you are not your own.

    Satan may be giving them success, and they may even believe they sold their souls to him, but the truth is anyone can be saved. All they have to do is repent, and believe the gospel!

    People who are successful rarely ever repent, it usually takes them hitting rock-bottom before they wake up! God frequently allows people to hit the bottom. It is His way of showing them they need a Saviour!

    These young ladies need our prayers, and they need a Christian witness, which is a rare thing these days!

  • Redeemed

    This just goes to show how damaging and destructive that counterfeit “christianity” is to children. You can’t Katy Perry and others for rejecting what this girl experienced and it ends up as a condemnation of legitimate Christianity. They want nothing to do with any of it and have chosen a totally different path. What is ironic is that her parents were actually serving Satan’s purposes as are all false teachers.

    Too bad someone didn’t reach her with the truth and expose the false teaching her parents subscribed to. Satan appears to have won thie one and others. So sad – and she will take others with her straight to hell.

  • Hanelie

    I find it interesting that so many pop artists come from so-called religious (implying Christian) backgrounds. This is why, I think, it is important to distinguish between religious Christianity (which is not Christianity at all, but just another superstition) and true Christianity / disciples of Jesus Christ. Could it be that Satan knows that parents are possibly more likely to be more okay with an artists who used to sing gospel?

    Have any of you seen the Hollywood Unmasked DVDs? Quite a bit there about souls being sold to Satan for fame. But, that should be no surprise. It is how he works. Isn’t it exactly what he offered Christ in the desert?

  • Mwila

    How so very enlightening. Thank you so much. This should get to as many parents as possible….Indeed the devil is busy trying to win as many as can in his camp. Let’s work out our salvation with fear and trembling as the bible admonishes

  • rey

    Um, I heard “at first sight and its real.” Besides, what’s so Satanic about saying “Satan is real”…don’t you also believe Satan is real? That’s a Christian belief isn’t it? Remember the common saying “the devil’s greatest deception is convincing people that he’s not real”; I must have heard that a million times from the pulpit growing up. I mean you even say “The Bible tells us Satan is a deceiver, the father of of lies, he comes to us disguised as an angel of light,…” Sounds to me like YOU are saying “Satan is real.” So I don’t get your overall point here. As to Katy Perry, she kissed a girl and she liked it. I haven’t heard Carly Rae Jepsen say anything like that. Its kinda funny to me the part of the song which bothers you is “at first sight and its real” (that’s what I heard) and not “I beg and borrow and STEAL” (which seems more offensive to me). And she’s just so cute.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    >> what’s so Satanic about saying “Satan is real”…don’t you also believe Satan is real?

    you kidding right? Yes, Satan knows he is real and he will make sure he lets you know.

    >> That’s a Christian belief isn’t it?

    This is not a Christian song and neither is Carly Rae Jespen

    >> Its kinda funny to me the part of the song which bothers you is “at first sight and its real” (that’s what I heard) and not “I beg and borrow and STEAL” (which seems more offensive to me). And she’s just so cute.

    No this did bother me, but I didn’t mention it. It bothers you, you mentioned it, but you still think she is sooo cute.

    What are you thinking with? Try your brain…

    Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

    >> “The Bible tells us Satan is a deceiver, the father of of lies, he comes to us disguised as an angel of light,…” Sounds to me like YOU are saying “Satan is real.” So I don’t get your overall point here.

    I rebuke you in the name of Jesus Christ.

  • Redeemed

    Rey, obviously the “Satan is real” wording was meant to promote Satan, not expose him. Hello! Kids who listen to these artists are searching for something that is “real” and novel and are tempted and intriqued to experiment with the occult. It is a trap. Also, many will not pick up on the words, but they WILL go into their subconscious mind and plant a seed.

  • Andy

    Katy Perry is an example of someone of which we could say 1 John 2:19. They were never one of us. They might have sat in a “church”, but so what? Sitting in a church and repeating canned Christianese is not how to be saved.

    She needs salvation, and so do all her disciples listening to her silly pop radio nonsense.

  • Redeemed

    Yes Andy, she sat in a false church and there is no happy ending to that.

  • Michael

    Pop music has always been a gray area…some of it was with good taste many years ago…I think of the late Whitney Houston…she had a very beautiful voice…she also had a Christian background (was she saved…We will never know but fell to temptation…my heart goes out to her and I only hope she was saved.
    The big time corrupts these poor souls…the temptation is very strong…I have a big problem with success and the people following…is a blessing or a curse…as I have grown older I have realised that there is a paradox between blessings and curses…material success is more leaning to Satan’s spoiling than to God’s blessing…WOF and charismatics have confused the common herd.
    Jesus said “What does it profit a man if he gain the whole world and loses his soul.”
    I cannot judge Whitney because she was unhappy and struggling with addictions…I only hope that her relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ was genuine but her state before her death was suspect.
    It was so sad because I really loved her voice. Far more superior to the Katy Pery’s of this world.

  • Redeemed

    Michael, you bring up a good point.
    I think of Jordin Sparks who won the American Idol a few years back. At the time everyone was pulling for this girl who professed to be a Christian and had high standards.

    Well as one follows her “success” her lifestyle and interviews seem to indicate that she has compromised her high standards at the altar of popularity. Ironically, she appeared with Whitney Houston in her last movie.

    Brittney Spears at first claimed to be a Christian and come from a Christian family. We all know how that turned out.

    Then there is Miley Cyrus whose father, Billy Ray Cyrus claimed to be a Christian. Miley has progressed from the wholesome “Hannah Montana” to a crazy and slutty lifestyle.

    These phony Christians start out well and get a following and then wham-o they make the conversion or perversion whatever to the pits.

  • Redeemed

    I had opportunity on a recent flight to view Katy Perry’s movie w/o cost. It appears that her siblings have all left the nest and followed her in her successful quest for fame.

    There was no profanity. I see this as a very sad story of a girl who was raised in a dysfunctional fake “christian” environment, very legalistic and very Pentecostal/charismatic. She was led into the demonic realm by her parents. With her false view of Christianity she was ripe for further deception by Satan. She did not achieve fame immediately – it was after several failures that she finally broke through into being a star.

    In her hunger and thirst for fame, she traveled roads that led her down the path of immorality and toleration of perversion. Her first hit was “I Kissed a Girl”.

    She married amidst the wild ride of a world tour but that union failed. Oddly enough her public personna is far removed from that of Lady Gaga and Madonna in that she presents somewhat of a wholesome image except for the twirlies on her unexposed breast area.

    In fact, it should be noted that in her audiences are many young children, brought to her concerts by their parents. This is the most disturbing to me.
    They are as lambs to the slaughter.

    Satan has certainly won the victory here. It is debatable that she made a pact with the devil as it was just plain persistence that got her to success. But she has most assuredly been used as an effective tool in his hands. I believe even moreso than Lady Gaga and Madonna who appeal to an older audience.

    This is a day when children are being led into the enemy camp by their parents, but in a different way that Katy Perry was led into his camp by her very own parents and a false, counterfeit “christianity”.

    Parents, guard your children, monitor the music they listen to, including so-called “christian” artists. Stick the truth of the Bible, see that it is written on their hearts, to safeguard them. Teach them to discern in a biblical way. Teach them that the most dangerous enemy is clothed as a sheep. Pray for them daily and walk uprightly before them.

  • MONTOEDI

    LET ME LET YOU IN ON SOME SECRET, THERE IS NO SATAN AND THERE IS NO GOD, JUST ME AND YOU AND WE WANT TO BELIEVE THERE IS SOMETHING ELSE. WELL THE TRUTH IS THAT THERE ARE GOOD PEOPLE AND BAD PEOPLE. THE END.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Montoedi

    Until you meet your maker and find out there is a God and it’s too late for you.

  • Martin Horan

    Your secret is no secret at all, Montoedi. In fact you so-called atheists are so vociferous about your beliefs that few people these days are ignorant of your beliefs that there is no devil or God.
    Your claim that people believe there is because they merely want to may be true for some people. But it is by no means true for everyone.
    In fact, there are probalby countless millions who don’t want to believe in God and the devil simply because it doesn’t fit what they want to believe–as they don’t like the idea of being subject to God’s demands so they don’t believe He exists. That is really as stupid as those people who believe in God without proving to themselves His existence.
    In the first place, while people do believe there’s no God or devil, how do they prove those things? To prove there’s no God, you would need to know everything–and no-one knows everything though there may be insane people who think they do!
    So it’s impossible to prove that God doesn’t exist.
    People prove daily that God and–yes–Satan exists. How? By praying to them and serving them. Satan gives his servants the things they want and strive for while it suits his ends. Answered prayer for Christians prove God’s existence. So does fulfilled prophecy.
    For one prophecy regardng Christ to come true, I read, is 5,000,000,000,000 to 1 and Jesus Christ fulfilled quite a few prophecies. Actually, so have the Jews. They have fulfilled many prophecies including being scattered across the earth, being persecuted like no other people, returning to their homeland when they’d think all their hope was gone–as happened right after the Holocaust–would return to face the ancient hatred of their former neighbours, one would put a thousand to flight (as happened in the Six-Day and Yom Kippur wars), would speak their ancient language, and so on.
    As to science the Bible tells us that the earth free-floats in space while the “great” civilisations believed the earth sat on the back of an elephant, turtle, or was held up by Atlas!
    It wasn’t until the 19th century that it was discovered that all visible matter consists of invisible elements as the Bible mentions in Hebrews 11:3.
    Some 3,500 years ago the Israelites were told by God how to have sanitation [Deut 23:12-13]. Lev 15:13 states that clothes and the body should be washed under running water, while most people did this in still water, until very recent times.
    Gen 6:15 written 4,500 years ago gives the perfect dimensions for a stable ship. Ship builders didn’t find that out until the end of the 1800s!
    The book of Job–one of the world’s most ancient books and perhaps the oldest in the Bible–tells us [38:16] that the oceans contain springs and that wasn’t discovered by marine science till the 1970s when submarines could go to the depths where those springs were. And the Book of Jonah [2:5-6] tells us that there are mountains at the bottom of the ocean; and man didn’t know that till recent history.
    120 years ago man did not know that blood is the source of life and health as Lev 17:11 teaches. George Washington died because his surgeons bled him when trying to heal him.
    The Bible also solves the chicken and egg dilemma [Gen 1:20-22].
    The Laws of Thermodynamics back Bible teachings as does the Law of Biogenesis. These are LAWS, remember and no mere unprovable THEORY like evolution. In fact, they disprove evolution! Isaiah 40:22 lets us know the earth was a sphere and Luke 17:34-36 assumes a revolving spherical earth–as people at the same time on the earth are working in the daytime and asleep at night.
    Light travels in a path [Job 38:19], though until the 17th century it was thought by scientists that it was transmitted instantaneously. Air has weight [Job 28:25]. The Jet Stream was anticipated in Ecclesiastes 1:6]. Medical quarantine was institued long before men understood it [Lev 13:45-46; Num 5:1-4].
    You won’t find those things in the Buddhist, Hindu, Sikh, Moslem or any other sacred writings. You won’t find it in their philosophical ones either.
    I could go on, Montoedi, but there wouldn’t be any point. The problem is, as the old saying goes, you can lead a horse to the well but you can’t make it drink. Some people are like that with God. They don’t want to believe when a few prayers can prove to you that He exists and is ready to answer.
    See, you or I can prove that 1 + 1 = 2. But neither of us can make anyone believe it if they don’t want to.
    You can’t make an atheist believe in God if he/she doesn’t want to, in spite of all the proofs. That’s why I find it difficult to have respect for atheists. They just are not logical people.
    One day they will know He exists whether they believe in him or not. It’ll be sad, as Deborah says, if you see it when it’s too late.
    You say, correctly, that there are good and bad people. But you don’t say why. The Bible has that answer to that one too.
